      Pre-Snap Read: A College Football Blog

      Here's another good write-up. It's from a blog that's doing a ranking of every FBS team. USF is ranked #39.

            Taking my buddy up for his 1st ND game. He was at my wedding, so he's been to ND, but that was in August. He's pumped, as am I. Flying up late Thursday night and driving to my in-laws' house in SB so he can have all day Friday to take in the scene. It's gonna be phenomenal.

                    Don't forget - you have to call me or text me from back there on Friday night. We have our pre-first game drinking tradition to adhere to! I will be waiting with a beverage in my hand to toast the new season!

                                I have been watching So. Flo. on ESPN U for the last few days.

                                They can play football.

                                We will prevail.

                                This game shouldn't be close- as our boys will be out for blood this year.

                                How's the "Golden Curtain" sound?

                                        Yes.

                                        It will be.

                                                              Notre Dame

                                                              USF fans discuss the matchup.

                                                              A lot of really interesting (comical, in some cases) responses. Of course, our predictions of a simple blowout win seem comical to them, as well.

                                                              The overall consensus from USF fans is that their defense will be able to handle anything Notre Dame can throw at them, and that they'll win if BJ Daniels plays well.

                                                              I thought this little exchange was comical. Here's the guy using some objectivity (albeit with inflated sizes for the DL):

                                                              The matchup that nobody is talking about but will be of critical importance is the USF OL Vs ND's front seven. If Daniels is to do anything against ND the OL will have to open holes and provide protection.

                                                              USF will have to replace some guys while ND's front seven is experienced and will be by far the biggest opposing front that they face this year. Their DL are 6'5 310, 6'4 330, 6'5 305. Their four starting LB's are all 250 plus. You don't see that sort of sheer size and length in the BE.

                                                              Running the ball will be critical to managing the game and keeping Daniels away from mistakes. If USF can run on 1st and 2nd down, third down becomes a manageable either/or call. If USF can't run the ball on 1st and 2nd down and gets into a lot of 3rd and 5+ situations ND will be able to dictate coverages and pressure Daniels into rushed decisions which will lead to mistakes.
                                                              The irrational response...

                                                              BJ won't even need an OL to run around these guys. lol
                                                              And of course you could find several misinformed and irrational posts in our own analysis of USF that would seem ridiculous to their fanbase.

They think that they will put a lot of pressure on Crist and they also think Giddins is going to crush him. They are definately stirring the pot on that site. I hope we return the favor on the field.

                                                                                        South Florida, Sept. 3: There will be plenty of storylines when Skip Holtz returns to South Bend where is father Lou famously led the Irish from 1986-96, winning a national championship in 1988. Season openers against worthy opponents can be a cause for concern, but this is a game the Irish must win – after all, you can’t win them all if you don’t win the first one. The Bulls offense is still seeking some traction after ranking No. 105 in the country last season. A defense that ranked No. 17 overall must replace four all-Big East performers.

Their huge over 300 lb defensive line will stop running games. That forces teams offenses to run off the edges and throw the ball more with a greater chance for interception. Also suspect opposing offenses will have to grab bag trick play more.
